Happy Wednesday everyone, and here is another Top 5 Wednesday and the topic is:
July 26th: Series That Got Better
— We’ve talked about series that went downhill with each book, but talk about series that are worth pushing through the first (or first few…) books to get to the good stuff!
This is an amazing topic because series that get better are always my favorite series. Also some of these on the list are series that I haven’t finished yet.
Legend Trilogy by Marie Lu
The first book, Legend was an amazing book. Prodigy was a great sequel that upped everything to 11, and Champion ended with a bang. Everything about this series is good. It is action packed and well written.
Shades of Magic by V.E. Schwab
A read the first two books earlier this year and have loved them very much. I haven’t read A Conjuring of Light yet but I will and I have heard great things about that book, and keeping away from spoilers. But I love the characters, Kell and Lila. I love the world it is set in and the idea of different London’s.
The illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
This series is not yet finished and I think its suppose to be a trilogy. Illuminae was one of the best books I read in 2016 and Gemina was one of the best books I read this year. I know the writing style is very conventional but I love it anyways, I am also disappointed that the third book comes out in 2018, and I don’t know if I could wait that long.
Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo
I read both of these books last year and loved them. While it is a duology, Six of Crows was an amazing book, and Crooked Kingdom was a fantastic sequel. The characters are amazing and its a very good heist book with a lot of twists and turns.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
I loved the first book Cinder. It was a great, it blended Sci Fi with the fairy tale genre, and the series kept getting better. With each book you are introduced to new characters and new worlds that keep expanding and the last book, Winter is basically all the characters coming together which feels like the fairy tale avengers.
Those are the series that I think got better. What are your favorite series that got better? Let me know in the comments below.
